About

$750 Typical Price

Reverend Stephen Stahley is a wedding officiant based in Ranson, West Virginia. As an ordained Catholic priest, this officiant works with clients to structure a service that reflects their aspirations and goals. Rev. Stahley prides himself on respecting and honoring all couples and faiths. He works with couples throughout the Washington D.C area, performing weddings at both indoor and outdoor venues.

Experience

Rev. Stahley was ordained a Catholic priest in 1978 as a member of the Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity. He served parishes in West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio. In 1988, Rev. Stahley resigned from the active priesthood and married his wife, Lisa. After a long career with the Montgomery County Government, he retired from public service and now devotes himself to a wide range of ministerial duties. Since 2003, Rev. Stahley has officiated at over 400 weddings throughout the nation.

Services Offered

While Reverend Stahley specializes in Catholic-themed nuptials, he has officiated at a wide range of religious, non-religious, and interfaith wedding ceremonies. Additionally, he has performed civil unions and vow renewals. While many couples prefer to go with established vow and ring formats, Rev. Stahley is happy to work with newlyweds-to-be who want to write their own pledges. He is also happy for them to add their own special elements to the wedding ceremony. If you are affiliated with a specific religion, Reverend Stahley will be glad to work with you in developing a ceremony that reflects the beauty and significance of your tradition.

    Wonderful Officiant!

    He was wonderful to work with. He made us feel so comfortable and really took the time to get to know us. He was also incredibly flexible, was great during the rehearsal, and really made our wedding. He had guests laughing, my family loved him, and we're so happy we had him as our officiant.

    One of the best decisions we made

    We had a terrific rapport, and he helped us feel comfortable every step of the way. He was so accommodating with our requests. He was incredibly friendly when talking to our families who come from different faiths and backgrounds. Our families loved getting to meet him at our wedding. I would highly recommend hiring Reverend Stahley.

    Class Act!

    Stephen is great to work with and is a superb professional. We moved our wedding due to COVID and Stephen was in contact with us the entire time and gave us support the whole way. Stephen took the lead at the rehearsal and made our ceremony move smoothly so we did not have to worry about the ceremony at all. Stephen is very charismatic and your guests will love him. We highly recommend his services and we look forward to keeping in touch!
